SURBL to Contribute Data on Bad Domains Into IID's Cyberthreat Data Exchange, ActiveTrust

List Containing Over Half a Million Malicious Domains Appearing in Unsolicited Emails Are Dynamically Updated Every Couple Minutes

TACOMA, WA--(Marketwired - May 14, 2015) - IID, the source for clear cyberthreat intelligence, today announced SURBL will be contributing to IID's big data solution for Internet security -- ActiveTrust. This means users will be able to leverage SURBL's data in the ActiveTrust dashboard and input it into any organization's cybersecurity infrastructure with no formatting as easily as IID's own data. SURBL data is a comprehensive and accurate list of over half a million active malicious domains that is dynamically updated every one to two minutes.

"The bad guys are always shifting the domains they carry out their crimes from, so it's essential that we provide the right data in near real-time to ensure the security of organizations and consumers," said SURBL co-founder Raymond Dijkxhoorn. "Given accuracy is what we pride ourselves the most in and ActiveTrust is trusted by dozens of Fortune 500 companies and government agencies to have timely and accurate intelligence about the latest cyberthreats, this partnership made perfect sense."

SURBL lists contain highly accurate intel about current and active bad domains. Unlike most blacklists, SURBLs are not lists of mail senders. SURBLs are highly effective at detecting and defending against the effects of phishing and botnets.

"SURBL is widely recognized within the cybersecurity industry as having one of the industry's most accurate list of domains related to malicious activity, and I'm excited to add their data to ActiveTrust because our clients will ultimately benefit immensely," said IID CTO, Rod Rasmussen.
